The way around it without extra software is to use a normal CD-Rom.
ATIP information is already on blank CD-R/RW discs. When the protection checks for this, it won't play the game.
Ignore Media Type hides the information, so the protection will execute the game.
Normal CD-Roms can't read ATIP information, therefore games with an ATIP check will play from them just fine.
I hope that answers your question.
